About the Book

Do you feel that taking your faith to work is as welcome as driving a truck through a living room? Please God, Let There Be Another Boom is a reasonable and helpful guide, showing foundations for integrating faith with work, and exploring the practical impact of faith at work. In an era where workers change jobs or move from city to city in order to sustain themselves and their families, hope to continue will be found in these chapters. After pouring solid footings for faith at work, the author presents ten important areas where workers balance belief with business. These areas include: …
• authority
• relationships at work
• verbal witness
• pay and its problems
• rest
• meaning at work
• prayer at work
• and more!
For over thirty years, author Grant McDowell has shepherded people who live with the impossibilities and rewards of the workplace, and he has engaged in their world via his blue-collar background, his involvement in the local business community, and by seeking ways to encourage those who refuse to pretend spirituality is reserved for wooden benches in quiet sanctuaries.
